homotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP
Desulfovibriovietnamensis is the correct name if this species is regarded as a separate species (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another species whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority) within a separate genus Desulfovibrio.
At the time of publication, the type strain was not deposited in two publicly accessible service collections in different countries, and Desulfovibrio vietnamensis Dang et al. 2002 was not validly published [Rules 27(3) and 30]. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Desulfovibrio vietnamensis Dang et al. 2002 is now considered to be validly published, since deposit in a second culture collection in a different country has been documented.Publication:
